Bring on Autumn!

Before I got sick I had a chance to start changing the seasons around my house. Out with the red-white-blue summer decor and in with the fall colors.
One of my favorite quilts!! I think it is one of my favorites because it took so long to make.
I love this one too.
The kitty got a change of pants and his jack 'o lantern. Designed by JoAnn Mullaly and published in Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine.

 
Love my goofy Gourdy's Gang!!

We are having a lovely end of summer here. Yesterday we woke up to 37 degrees and the high was 91 degrees. It's a little confusing but my favorite time of the year.
Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Love the first one because it's Cindy Blackberg's pattern Always loved her work and spent a very happy day with her at her home when she lived in Florida going through her quilts. That one being one of them.
    The weather dosen't know what it is doing here either. Very very hot.

  4. I must get out my Autumn pieces - it's just that summer has only just arrived in the UK this week - it took long enough! But seeing all your lovely treasures has made me decide to redress the house, whatever the weather! Have a great weekend.

  12. Love all of the Autumn decor--my favorite season of the year. You have done it up right!!
    We haven't dipped into the 30s yet, but the 40s are here--with daytime in the 80s. So pleasant.

  13. It was fun to see how you decorate. I love that blue and cheddar quilt. I need to keep that color scheme in mind for future reference. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I love the Railroad Crossing quilt (I think that's the name) designed by Cindy Blackberg. I have saved the copy of magazine so that I can some day do this one! Did you hand piece or machine quilt? I have the Goofy Gourdy Gang pattern somewhere....time to bring it out and see if I can complete in time to use this year....why do I wait until the last minute to think of Fall and Halloween quilts and I love this time of the year!!!

  15. All of the autumn posts are making me quite envious of the cooler weather everyone is soon to be experiencing (if they're not already). Here in Florida, autumn arrives very late and is fleeting.

    Your red and white quilt came out wonderfully!

  16. I think I need to change my decor! I can't believe it's here already....though I'm super happy about it!

  17. The new decorations tell me that the seasons have changed at your house. They all look wonderful. I best get busy at my own house.

  30. Those are a couple of my favorite quilts of yours, too. I'll bet your house looks great! Autumn is welcome in many areas, including here in the Midwest.

  31. Every quilt is so great! I made the gordy gang too. I haven't hung any quilts since the painting earlier this year. Must get the new rods up soon and hang some fall.
    Hope you are better. I got some virus now.:(
